As part of our ongoing revamp process for our Ancients ranges, next in line is the Achaemenid Persians!  This will be last revamped range for a short while and we'll be looking to get these moulded and released within the next couple of months hopefully, along with the Greeks, Dacians and Sarmatians.

As with most of our recent ranges, we've gone as comprehensive as possible with these so this definitely more of an expansion than a straight replacement!

We've also had the shields altered on the Greeks to make them a bit bigger, thanks to Techno for the quick work on these!

A decent amount of cavalry this time round.

Well done Leon.

I'll have a few of them later in the year.

Terrific looking figures and authentic looking too - a vast improvement on my old 15s, which I am now considering off-loading. Is there a future range of Alexandrian Macedonians planned?

Now all I need is a suitable set of rules.

The Greeks do still need at least one thureophoros - one of the defining Hellenistic troop types.

Those Greeks are much better with the larger aspis.

Thanks, Techno.
